Ep. 42: A Filmmaker’s View: Achieving Your Lifelong Dream After 65

“Older women shouldn’t feel invisible.”


On today’s episode, we talk about what inspired Melissa’s debut documentary “Beyond Sixty”, her day with M. Night Shyamalan, and some sneak peeks about her exciting next projec

Show notes:

Episode 42: People used to retire at 65 because it was the end. But with medical technology and general health getting better all the time, a person’s life doesn’t have to stop just because they age.

Melissa Davey was in the throes of corporate America, successful in both the non-profit and for-profit worlds. However, after the excitement started to fade, she realized that she needed a change.

After a chance encounter with M. Night Shyamalan, she suddenly had a different dream—one that had never even occurred to her before. Before she knew it, she was making her own documentary—highlighting women beyond 60.
